Tuesday’s Rambles ~ 26 October 2010

First Baseball! 🙂

~ Tomorrow the World Series starts! GO GIANTS!!!!  Good Luck guys!

~ Still shaking my head about hearing Tim McCarver call Jeremy ‘AFLAC’ instead of Affeldt. Did he just say Aflac?! He’s a strange man.

~ Miss you Kruk & Kuip! More than you’ll ever know!

~ CSN Bay Area Sports Giants VideosI swear the best postgame interview was with Sergio Romo. He’s off on the right hand side (about 5 rows down)…between Freddy and Brian. That is one excited guy…haven’t seen a guy giggle like a little kid in quite a while. (10.23: NLCS Game 6 Postgame – Sergio Romo)

*******************

~ Started cutting out a new quilt.

Using Allison’s of Cluck.Cluck.Sew. All Patched Up pattern. I pulled out two Layered Cakes that I’ve had in my stash ~ Cotton Blossoms fabric by Bonnie & Camille for Moda.

*****************

~ I had to scrape the frost off of my car windows this morning! WOO HOO!

~ Bruce Willis still has it. John Malkovich is just plain crazy. Helen Mirren lovely, and badass, as always. Saw Red over the weekend. Loved it.

*****************

Some autumn leaves above the Truckee River.

This is one of my favorite condo buildings in downtown Reno…it’s right on the Truckee River across from Wingfield Park.

~ Sunday it rained and rained and rained…mostly horizontally, as the winds were very strong.

*****************

~ Picked up a few more Michael Perry books after reading Coop…started reading Population: 485 – Meeting your Neighbors One Siren at a Time. Also have Truck: A Love Story, Off Main Street: Barnstormers, Prophets & Gatemouth’s Gator, and Why They Killed Big Boy.

For Today ~ 19 October 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 19 October 2010

Outside My Window… It’s pretty dark out. Godzilla could be out there and I’d not know it…well…ok, I’d know that Godzilla was out there.

I am thinking… Why are we having a 1 pm game in San Francisco?! What’s wrong with 4 or 5 pm? Is that too late for you all back east to stay up?! Am extremely grateful that the Marlins didn’t want Cody Ross anymore and that we were selfish in not wanting the Padres to have him! I’d definitely vote him MVP of the series with Philly!

What a jackass! “Baltimore Ravens LB Ray Lewis was pretty steamed about their overtime loss to the Patriots Sunday, and he made it clear that he and his fellow teammates plan to take it out on the Bills this Sunday.” ~ Oh! That’s a big man! Pick on my Bills who are 0-5! Idiot. May Buffalo WIN THEIR FIRST GAME OF THE SEASON AGAINST YOU! HA!

I am thankful for… for my friend, April. I wish you lived closer.

From the kitchen… Leftover homemade beef stew…with maters, taters, onions, celery, parsnips and carrots.

I am wearing… Jeans, tennies, brown t-shirt, hair in a ponytail.

I am creating… I finished the flannel lap quilt that will be donated. It’s soooo warm and fuzzy.

I think I may try this quilt next, from Cluck.Cluck.Sew. I have a jelly roll of Lila Tueller’s EDEN just waiting to be made into a quilt! 🙂

I am going… to turn on the space heater under my desk…just got some goose bumps on my arms!

I am reading… I finished Coop: A Family, a Farm, and the Pursuit of One Good Egg by Michael Perry. I LOVED THAT BOOK! Am going to stop by Sundance Book Store on the way home and check to see if they have any more of his books.

I am hoping… that ORANGE & BLACK rules throughout OCTOBER! GO GIANTS!

I am hearing… Always the same…ice machine, hvac, doors slamming, phones ringing.

Around the house… laundry needs to be done. I actually threw all my clothes down the basement stairs this morning.

One of my favorite things… my alone time.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… to just get through the week. 🙂

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you… a picture I took on Sunday while roaming around the Ferrari Farm.

Ferrari Farm Barn, Reno, Nevada

For Today ~ 27 September 2010 ~ Simple Woman’s Daybook

FOR TODAY … 27 September 2010

Outside My Window…looking out the double doors and see sunshine on the trees, some faculty and students walking, cars buzzing too fast through the parking lot.

I am thinking… I need a Sunday re-do. If I would have stayed home, my car would still be old, but not missing any parts. Should be a good MNF game tonight…the Packers & the Bears! Hoping the Giants have a nice day off. It’s a bit nippy here in the warehouse/storage area that I call my office, wish I had brought a sweater with me this morning.

I am thankful for… that my car still runs, even though someone backed into it.

From the kitchen… nothing…I think I’m going to stop off and get some falafels from Giant Burger on the way home.

I am wearing… Shorts, dark grey t-shirt, tennies, hair in a ponytail.

I am creating… Trying to finish a crafting challenge before Thrusday’s deadline.

I am going… smack that lye calculator that suggested more lye to the water ratio…now I have three batches of fugly soap that cracked. It still is soap…just ugly and I can’t sell it.

I am reading… THE ONE HIGH POINT! I picked up a new book at Sundance Bookstore
Coop: A Family, a Farm, and the Pursuit of One Good Egg by Michael Perry. So far it’s a great read!

I am hoping… my friend, April, starts to feel better. Poor hurt ribs… 😦

I am hearing… Air unit, ice machine, me typing, doors opening and closing.

Around the house… a very clean bathroom…scrubbed the heck out of it before settling in to watch the SF Giants & Rockies play.

One of my favorite things… A good nights sleep…something I didn’t get last night worrying about my car.

A Few Plans For The Rest Of The Week… just put my head down and get through the week. Friday night is the Eagles concert.

Here is a picture thought I’d share with you…
